Don't forget the diesel sales tax ALSO went up from 9% to 13%! If they stopped diverting the fuel taxes from roads for motor vehicles to non-road uses, we could fix the roads for what the previous tax rates brought in.

In the last two days I've seen diesel prices between $2.569 and $2.969. I was okay with paying $2.679 today when I was on reserve. RUG appears to be mostly $2.50 to $2.60, with some higher and some lower. There are some stations where the spread between RUG and diesel is only 5-7 cents/gallon.

In Ontario the cheapest fuel is on the reserves Diesel is 83.9/Liter, Reg. is 1.029/Liter.
Off the reserve however the lowest Diesel (around here) is 1.099/Liter, Reg. is 1.136/Liter.

Highest prices around are 1.755/Liter for Diesel and 1.449/Liter for Regular.
